Question:  I know there are many Archaeological journals for English history, but has there ever been one for Native American studies in Massachusetts.  I understand the late Russell Gardner published some accounts of my Native American ancestry in such a publication.


Answer:  The publication I am certain you are referring to is the Bulletin of the Massachusetts Archaeological Society.  They are based out of Middleboro, Massachusetts, and have their museum and offices there.  I knew the late Russell Gardner and I recall that he was associated as a member like I have been with this organization.  They have scanned into PDF format all their bulletins from 1939-2010.  Most of the content is regarding the rich archaeological past of of Massachusetts, but social anthropological and genealogical topics are included.  To order the CD-Rom of the Bulletin or get more information reach them online at
